So after making my first notebook, I realized I still didn't feel like doing my schoolwork, so I made another one for my boyfriend. He's always searching for scraps of paper to jot down his ideas (for recipes, songs etc) so now he can use this. He will also lose the idea-pages much less frequently. Smiley


I didn't have any non-girly scrapbook paper, so I used an ad for beers from a magazine. we both love our expensive beers, so it's fitting.


the stitching is pretty straight. not perfect, but it gets the job done.


the inside and my little note. our names are blurred out. Smiley

 I love the cover on this one.  What kind of paper are you using for the signatures?  Also, what are you using for the cover core?

thanks! for the signatures I just used plain white paper. the first book was printer paper cut in half and then folded, and this one is made from the paper of one of my many sketchbooks, cut to 10X22 cm and folded.

for the core of the covers I am using illustration board which I have left over from a comic project I did for school. it's just a dense cardboard about 1/8inch thick, and I found it at my local Hobby Shop. Michael's does not carry it, and as for other stores I have no idea. You could probably find some packaging boxes of a good weight, but I didn't have any.

Thanks for the info.  I'll be looking for something to use for my covers other than the wood that I'm using.

When I made my journal, I used photo paper, so I could use it for scrapbooking.  Probably overkill, but that's what I had on hand.
